Benefits Of Fish

Question: What are the benefits of Fish Oil? What are the benefits of Fish Oil, and what's the best what to consume it?

Answer: The particular benefit of fish oil (either from consuming fish or taking concentrated oil capsules) is the presence of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3's (unlike Omega-6 or 9's) work on a biochemical pathway that reduces inflammation. Because so much of our food today enhances inflammation, there is evidence that many of our ailments like heart disease come from an overactive inflammatory response in the body. Omega-3's can be obtained from fish oil or from certain other natural sources like flax seed or walnuts. Any health food store can supply you with good concentrated sources of EPA and DHA (subsets of Omega-3's). The more the merrier. Don't get sucked in by the Omega-6 or 9 supplements, you get all of those you need from MacDonalds. Also, you tend to get what you pay for. The more expensive the Omega-3 supplement, the better the filtering, and the less potential toxins.
